Earlier this month we were thrilled to share the news that Stephen Fry is coming to Auckland, and now we can announce another British national treasure is making her way “down under”.

Award-winning actor, best-selling novelist and comedian Dawn French is bringing her critically acclaimed stage show 30 Million Minutes to Auckland in March 2016 as part of a New Zealand tour.

Having toured the show extensively in the UK to glowing reviews in the British press, Dawn still finds it hard to define. She says; “I am enjoying the fact that I can’t categorise exactly what it is, but it’s somewhere between a monologue, a play, and an autobiographical slide show with a few funnies thrown in.”

Tickets will go on sale on Monday October 5th at 10am for the tour, which includes two Auckland dates: 29th and 30th March 2016 at the Civic Theatre.

My Live Nation pre-sale tickets go on sale at 12pm September 30th until 10am October 1st.
